38 weeks :)
Symptoms: General soreness and a lot of pressure low in my pelvis, nausea, heartburn and headaches! Oh boy! :-P
Well... another week closer to what we're calling Vivienne Day! I can't believe we're so, so close! it's exciting and making us anxious all at the same time. Our doctor appointment was technically our pre-op appointment this week and everything is looking like we'll hold old out until the big day- but you know what happens when you count on or guarantee anything lol. Plans can always change. The doctor said that she was happy by her heartbeat and I am doing good... high blood pressure at first take, but it dropped after laying down on my side for a while. I had the same issue when I was pregnant with Roslyn but it was definitely worse then than it is now. I think going on the thyroid medicine and the weight loss that I have experienced as a result of that has helped.
This week I got the hospital bags packed, we've taken my dad to Roslyn's school so he knows the pick-up process and the staff and her teacher know who he is and that he is helping us out. We're hoping to get some last minute things done around the house this weekend and take a lot of time to relax and enjoy these last few days before we bring our precious little girl home.
It's funny how when you find out that you are pregnant that this time that we're in right now seems so very far away and then before you know it, here you are. Days away from welcoming your little one to your world and you look back and wow- it all seemed to have blown by in the blink of an eye!
My plan is to pregnancy blog again next week before we go to the hospital, but if we can't... I just have to say that this has been an incredible adventure for us. An adventure that I didn't know I'd get to have again and am so grateful for. The support and the love we've received during these last 8 months has been truly amazing and cherished and we're so grateful for every single bit of it. Sharing this with our family and friends who love us has made it that much more wonderful. Thank you. From the bottom of our hearts.
